REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

The Board of Selectmen are pleased to report that 2003 has been a very busy 
and in some ways an historic year for the town. Most notable is the proposed 
development of senior housing on Sohier Street after so many years of 
investigation and study. The purchase of the Cook estate combined with the 
town's parcel provides a unique opportunity for the town to plan and direct 
development of a community which will be home to Cohasset seniors of all 
income levels for many years to come. 

Highlights of the year are: 

January: 

The year began with grim news about the upcoming budget year. State 
representatives met with the board and predicted another year of cuts in local aid 
that could affect the next several budget cycles. Town Manager Mark Haddad 
presents a budget that requires an override in order to maintain the current level 
of services. Almost all departments will be hit with some reduction in spending. 
Planning for the revitalization of the downtown continues. The project plans for 
upgrading the police/fire station on Elm St. include two small additions and 
raising the roof in the fire station bay. 

February: 

Appointments are made to a new town Wastewater committee. Excessive ice 
build-up in Bailey's Creek causes some of the pilings for the floats at Mariner's 
Park to be dislodged; and repairs and improvements to the design are 
considered. The PWED grant for the downtown is extended to June 2004. 
Village merchants discuss raising private donations to help fund undergrounding 
of the utilities. The MBTA announces a six month delay in construction activities 
related to the restoration of the Greenbush line. This delay could have a 
significant impact on related construction projects in the town. Jacqueline 
Rafferty is appointed to the position of Library Director. The DPW continues to 
work hard clearing the roads this snowy winter. 

March: 

The Town Manager, in cooperation with the school department and the water 
commission, presents a reduced budget that will require an override of 
$350,000. 

April: 

The annual election is held; the override is supported by the voters and Michael 
Sullivan is re-elected to the board. The contract to renovate the police/fire station 



18 



is awarded to Trace Construction. Work will begin next month and the fire 
department will be moved to temporary quarters. The Board adopts rules and 
regulations for recycling by private haulers. Plans for the downtown continue to 
be a topic of discussion, as is the board's comments on the proposed 40B project 
by Avalon Bay. The Board adopts the Town Clerk's proposal to create one "All 
Facilities" sticker for the beach and the RTF. 

May: 

The Board acknowledges the work and dedication of Harbormaster John 
"Moose" Winters III who passed away this month. The Grov^h & Development 
Committee presents a draft Affordable Housing Plan. The Board hosts the first 
forum of all town boards and committees at the Lightkeeper's Residence. The 
town begins dialogue with the Cook Estate to discuss the possibility of a senior 
housing development on the property. AGM Marine receives the contract to 
reconstruct the James Brook tide gates. 

June: 

The towns of Weymouth, Cohasset, Hingham and Scituate draft a letter to the 
MBTA requesting that submission of further design packages be delayed until the 
use of quad gates is resolved. 

July: 

The Town invokes dispute resolution under the Greenbush mitigation agreement 
with regard to the quad gate issue. The Town History committee presents the 
Board with six Cohasset History panels developed for the eighth grade local 
history program. The Board establishes a Local Emergency Planning Committee 
and Glenn Pratt is appointed Assistant Director. The Board establishes a 
Housing Partnership to facilitate the development of affordable housing projects. 
The Board tests the concept of "bumpouts" in the downtown design plans. 
Vine Associates analyzes the seawall on Border Street between Atlantica and 
the Mill River Marina and designs plans for its restoration. The town hires MMA 
Consulting Group to review and analyze the town. manager form of government 
and to make recommendations on further efficiencies of operation. 

August: 

The MBTA agrees not to make further design submissions until the Army Corps 
conducts a hearing on grade crossing treatments. 



19 



September: 

The new self- regulating tide gates are installed at Cohasset Cove. The Town's 
offer to purchase the 22.4 acre Cook Estate on Sohier Street is accepted and a 
purchase and sale agreement is signed. The parcel will be combined with an 
adjoining town parcel and developed into a residential community for Cohasset 
seniors. A joint meeting with the School Committee is held to fill a vacancy on 
the committee caused by the resignation of Jane Pescatore. Former school 
committee member Rick Shea is chosen to fill the spot. 

October: 

A ceremony is held to rededicate the Deer Hill School. 

November: 

Town Meeting endorses a concept for the downtown revitalization that rejects 
placing the utilities underground, and approves the use of concrete sidewalks. 
Plans can now be finalized by the selectmen. 

December: 

The Straits Pond Watershed Association updates the Board on their activities 
and recommends replacement of the culvert at West Corner. The Board 
discusses a schedule of work for the James Brook flood control and the 
downtown revitalization projects. The Board issues a statement relative to issues 
within the police department. The Selectmen thank all Boards, Committees, 
volunteers and town employees for their dedication and work in serving the Town 
of Cohasset this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Roseanne M. McMorris, 
Chairman

REPORT OF THE TOWN CLERK 

As the year 2003 comes to a close, I respectfully submit my twelfth report as 
Town Clerk. Along with conducting the annual census, issuing dog licenses, 
certificates, etc., we had two elections and two town meetings. Those results 
follow this report along with the vital records 

A special commission has been studying the annual census. The commission is 
charged with studying the statewide cost of the annual town census and 
determining if there is a more cost-effective means of gathering this information if 
the state eliminates this mandate. Information obtained from the census is 
ultimately used to prepare the street list, annual registry of voters, school list, dog 
owner list, and jury list. It also establishes eligibility for resident's tuition at state 
colleges, for veteran reimbursement, for senior citizen programs and other 
benefits. The census provides valuable information to various departments 
throughout the town. If the census were eliminated accurate listings would be 
unavailable. 

In November, The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court njled that gays have 
the right to marry under our state constitution. The General Court has 180 days 
to act on the ruling. Therefore, during these 180 days a marriage license cannot 
be issued to same sex couples. 

As always, our office extends its appreciation to the citizens of Cohasset, town 
officials, department heads, town employees, election workers and committees 
for their support and assistance during the year. A sincere thanks goes to my 
assistant, Carol St. Pierre. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Marion L. Douglas 
Town Clerk

Resolution offered by Raymond Kasperowicz: 

RESOLUTION 

Whereas Gary Vanderwell has served eighteen years as a member of the Cohasset Sewer 
Commission, the last five years as Chairman, and selflessly devoted thousands of hours to guide 
the planning and coordination of the $25 million construction of innovative sewer systems 
adapted to the North Cohasset, Central Cohasset and Lily Pond districts, and 

Whereas he has led the Commission through the arduous initial phase of system operations with 
its attendant requirements of finding solutions to start-up problems and developing regulations, 
policies and procedures, and budgeting and meeting and corresponding with homeowners, and 

Ever so important, even in the most challenging of circumstances has always been a model of 
decorum and wisdom in his dealings with state and local officials and fellow citizens, and 

Whereas he has established himself as co-Godfather of Cohasset's sewer system with our sorely 
missed Ted Guild, we owe him a token of our thanks. However, what could be worthy of 
someone who has a wonderful wife and family and a couple of buildable beachfront lots - in the 
North Cohasset sewer district, 

Therefore be it resolved by the citizens of Cohasset in Town Meeting assembled, to express their 
gratitude and their best wishes to Gary Vanderwell, a Good Man and an Outstanding Citizen. 

Motion adopted unanimously. 



Article 3: 

To see if the Town will vote to fix salaries and compensation of Elected Officers, and to see what 
sums the Town will vote to raise and appropriate from available funds or otherwise, for the 
payment of the salaries and compensation, expenses, equipment and outlays, capital and 
otherwise, of the several Town Departments, for the ensuing fiscal year.

Motion is adopted. 

Moved to advance Article 15. 
Motion voted unanimously. 

Article 15: 

To see if the Town will vote to amend the Zoning Bylaw of the Town of Cohasset by adding a 
new Section 4A entitled "Comprehensive Permits for Pre-Existing and Unpermitted Dwelling 
Units and for New Dwelling Units in Existing Structures: as follows: 

SECTION 4A COMPREHENSIVE PERMITS FOR PRE-EXISITING AND UNPERMITTED 
DWELLING UNITS AND FOR NEW DWELLING UNITS IN EXISTING STRUCTURES 

1 .0 Intent and Purpose. 

1.1 Ttie intent of this Bylaw is to provide an opportunity to bring into 
compliance many of the currently unpermitted accessory apartments 
and apartment units in the Town of Cohasset, as well as to 
encourage the use of existing dwellings to create additional 
affordable housing. 

1.2 This Bylaw recognizes that although unpermitted and unlawfully 
occupied, these dwellings units are filling a market demand for 
housing at rental costs typically below that of u nits which are and 
have been, lawfully constructed and occupied. 

1.3 It is in the public interest and in concert with its obligations under 
state law, for the Town of Cohasset to offer a means by which so- 
called unpermitted and illegal dwelling units can achieve lawful 
status, but only in the manner described below. 

1.4 It is the position of the Town of Cohasset that the most appropriate 
mechanism for allowing for the conversion of unlawful dwelling units 
to lawful units is found in GL c.40B, ss. 20-23, the so-called 



34 



"Comprehensive Permit" program. This provision of state law 
encourages the development of low and moderate-income rental and 
owner occupied housing and provides a means for the Board of 
Appeals to remove local barriers to the creation of affordable housing 
units. These barriers include any local regulation such as zoning 
and general bylaws that may be an impediment to affordable housing 
development. 

1.5 The Local Comprehensive Plan states that the Town should commit 
appropriate resources to support affordable housing initiatives. 
Under this bylaw, the Town commits the following resources to 
support this affordable housing initiative: 

a. Waiver of fees for the inspection and monitoring of the 
properties identified under this bylaw; 

b. Designation of town staff to assist the property owner in 
navigating through the process established under this bylaw; 

c. To the extent allowable by law, the negative effect entailed 
by the deed restriction involved will be reflected in the 
property tax assessment, and 

d. To assist property owners in locating available municipal, 
state and federal funds for rehabilitating an upgrading the 
propertied identified under this bylaw. 

1.6 The Local Comprehensive Plan supports, in conjunction with a 
variety of other strategies, the conversion of existing structures for 
use as affordable housing. 

1 .7 Through the creation of a local Chapter 40B program, the Town can 
create a mechanism to utilize existing structures for the creation of 
affordable housing units that is consistent with the Town's identified 
housing needs. 

2.0 Creation of Local Chapter 408 Program 

As part of the Town's efforts to create the type of affordable housing that best meets the needs of 
the town and its residents, the Town Manager and staff designated by the Town Manager, shall 
establish a screening process and criteria for the preexisting and unpermitted units described 
herein, as well as for new units in existing structures, as part of a local Chapter 408 program 
which program will assure that the units being created and/or permitted in existing dwellings and 
structures qualify as low or moderate income housing as that term is defined in 760 CMR 30.02. 
The Town Manager shall be authorized to issue site approval letters for such units in appropriate 
circumstances. 

3:0 Amnesty Program 

Recognizing that the success of this Bylaw depends, in part, on the admission by real property 
owners that their property may be in violation of the zoning bylaws of the Town, the Town hereby 
establishes the following Amnesty Program: 

3.1 The threshold criteria for units being considered as units potentially eligible for the Amnesty 
Program are: 

a. Real property containing a dwelling unit or dwelling units for which there does not exist a 
valid issued variance, special permit or building permit, does not qualify as a lawful, non- 
conforming use or structure, for any or all the units, and that was in existence on a lot of 
record within the Town as of January 1 , 2003; or 

b. Real property containing a dwelling unit or dwelling units for which was in existence on a 
lot of record within the Town as of January 1 , 2003 and which has been cited by the 
Building Department as being in violation of the zoning bylaw and 



35 



c. The property owner has the burden of demonstrating to the Building Commissioner that 
the criteria in either paragraphs (1) and/or (b) have been satisfied. 

d. If any dwelling unit or units identified herein are occupied during the period of time when 
amnesty is in effect, said unit must be inspected by the entity designated by the Town 
Manager and found to be in conformance with the State Building Code and State 
Sanitary Code. 

3.2 Procedure for Qualifying for Amnesty for Units that meet Threshold Criteria 

a. The unit or units must either be a single unit accessory to an owner occupied single 
family dwelling or one or more units in a multifamily dwelling where there exists a legal 
multifamily use but one or more units are currently unpermitted;

program; 

c. The property owner must agree that if she/he receives a comprehensive permit, the unit

80% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) of Boson Metropolitan Statistical Area 
(MSA) and shall further agrees that rent (including utilities) shall not exceed the rents 
established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for a

Statistical Area. In the event that utilities are separately metered, the utility allowance 
established by the Cohasset Housing Partnership shall be deducted from HUD's rent 
level. 

d. The property owner must agree, that if she/he receives a comprehensive permit, the 
she/he will execute an affordable housing restriction pursuant to M.G.L. c. 184, in a form

prepared by the Town of Cohasset, which runs with the property and which restricts the 
use of one or more units as rental units to a person or family whose income is 80% or 
less of the median income of Boston Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). 

e. Upon receiving the site approval letter under 3.2(b) above, the property owner shall within 
three (3) months file an application for a comprehensive permit under the local Chapter 
40B program with the Cohasset Zoning Board of Appeals. 

3.3 Obtaining Amnesty and Duration 

a. No zoning enforcement shall be undertal<en against any property owner who 
demonstrates that she/he meets the threshold criteria under section 3.1 and further 
demonstrates that she/he is proceeding in good faith to comply with the procedures 
under section 3.2 to obtain a comprehensive permit. 

b. Any protection from zoning enforcement under this bylaw shall terminate when: 1) A 
written determination is issued under the local Chapter 40B program that the criteria 
under Section 3.2 and the local Chapter 40B program cannot be satisfied; or 2) it is 
determined that the property owner is not proceeding diligently with his/her Chapter 40B 
application; or 3) the property owner's Chapter 40B application is denied. A person is 
deemed "not to be proceeding diligently" if she does not receive a comprehensive permit 
within twelve months from the date of issuance of the site approval letter under the local 
Chapter 40B program. 

c. This amnesty program shall expire on June 30, 2006 after which expiration the property 
will be subject to zoning enforcement. 

.0 New Accessory L^nits in Single Family Owner Occupied Dwellings

Article 15: 

To see if the Town will amend the Zoning Bylaws by adding new Section 17 as follows: 

Section 17 Permits for Preexisting and Unpermitted Dwelling Units and for New Dwelling 

Units in Existing Structures 

1 .0 Intent and Purpose 

1 .1 The intent of this Bylaw is to provide an opportunity to bring into compliance many of the 
currently unpermitted accessory apartments and apartment units in the Town of Cohasset, as 
well as to encourage the use of existing dwellings to create additional affordable housing. 

1.2 This Bylaw recognizes that although unpermitted and unlawfully occupied, these dwelling 
units are filling a market demand for housing at rental costs typically below that of units which are 
and have been, lawfully constructed and occupied. 



69 



1 .3 It is in the public interest and in concert with its obligations under state law, for the Town 
of Cohasset to offer a means by which so-called unpermitted and illegal dwelling units can 
achieve lawful status, but only in the manner described below. 

1.4 It is the position of the Town of Cohasset that the most appropriate mechanism for 
allowing for the conversion of unlawful dwelling units to lawful units is found in MGL c.40B,ss.20- 
23. This provision of state law encourages the development of low and moderate-income rental 
and owner occupied housing and provides a means for the Board of Appeals to remove local 
barriers to the creation of affordable housing units. These barriers include any local regulation 
such as zoning and general bylaws that may be an impediment to affordable housing 
development. 

1.5 Under this bylaw, the Town commits the following resources to support his affordable 
housing initiative: 

a. Waiver of fees for the inspection and monitoring of the properties identified under this 
bylaw; 

b. Designation of town staff to assist the property owner in navigating through the process 
established under this bylaw; 

c. To the extent allowable by law, the negative effect entailed by the deed restriction 
involved will be reflected in the property tax assessment, and 

d. To assist property owners in locating available municipal, state and federal funds for 
rehabilitating and upgrading the properties identified under this bylaw. 

1.6 The town's Master Plan and subsidiary Affordable Housing Plan supports, in 
conjunction with a variety of other strategies, the conversion of existing structures for use as 
affordable housing. 

1.7 Through the creation of the following "amnesty" program, the town can create a 

mechanism to utilize existing structures for the creation of affordable housing units that is 
consistent with the town's identified housing needs. 

2.0 Creation of Amnesty Program 

2.1 As part of the Town's efforts to create the type of affordable housing that best meets 
the needs of the Town and its residents, the Town Manager and staff designated by the Town 
Manager, shall establish a screening process and criteria for the preexisting and unpermitted 
units described herein, as well as for new units in existing structures created under the Accessory 
Dwelling Bylaw or other applicable sections of the Zoning Bylaw, as part of a local program which 
will assure that the units being created and/or permitted in existing dwellings and structures 
qualify as low or moderate income housing as that term is defined in 760 CMR 30.02. 

2.2 Recognizing that the success of this bylaw depends, in part, on the admission by 
real property owners that their property may be in violation of the Zoning Bylaws of the Town, the 
Town hereby establishes the following Amnesty Program: 

2.2.1 The threshold criteria for units being considered as units potentially eligible for the 

Amnesty Program are: 

a. Real property containing a dwelling unit or dwelling units for which there does not exist a 
validly issued variance, special permit or building permit, does not qualify as a lawful, non- 
conforming use or structure, for any or all the units, and that was in existence on a lot of record 
within the Town as of July 1 , 2003; or 

b. Real property containing a dwelling unit or dwelling units which was in existence as of 
July 1, 2003 and which has been cited by the Building Department as being in violation of the 
Zoning Bylaw and 

c. The property owner has the burden of demonstrating to the Building Commissioner that 
the criteria in either paragraphs (a) and/or (b) have been satisfied. 

d. If any dwelling unit or units identified herein are occupied during the period of time when 
amnesty is in effect, said unit must be inspected by the entity designated by the Town Manager 
and found to be in conformance with the State Building Code and State Sanitary Code. 

2.3 Procedures for Qualifying for Amnesty for Units that Meet Threshold Criteria: 

a. The unit or units must either be a single unit accessory to an owner occupied single 
family dwelling or one or more units in a multifamily dwelling where there exists a legal 
multifamily use but one or more units are currently unpermitted; 

b. The unit(s) must receive a site approval letter from the Town Manager. 

70 



c. The property owner must agree that if he receives an amnesty permit, the unit or units for 
which amnesty is sough will be rented to a person or family whose income is 80% or less of the 
Area Median Income (AMI) of Boston Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) and shall further agrees 
that rent (including utilities) shall not exceed the rents established by the Department of Housing 
and Urban Development (HUD) for a household whose income is 80% or less of the median 
income of Boston Metropolitan Statistical Area. In the event that utilities are separately metered, 
the utility allowance established by the Cohasset Housing Partnership shall be deducted from 
HUD'S rent level. 

d. The property owner must agree, that if he receives a comprehensive permit, that he will 
execute an affordable housing restriction pursuant to MGL c. 184, in a form and for a term 
acceptable to the town, for the unit or units for which amnesty is sought, prepared by the Town of 
Cohasset, which runs with the property so as to be binding on and enforceable against any 
person claiming an interest in the property and which restricts the use of one or more units as 
rental units to a person or family whose income is 80% or less of the median income of Boston 
Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). 

e. Upon receiving the site approval letter under 2.3(b) above, the property owner shall within 
three (3) months file an application for an amnesty permit under this program with the Cohasset 
Zoning Board of Appeals. 



2.4 Obtaining Amnesty and Duration 

a. No zoning enforcement shall be undertaken against any property owner who 
demonstrates that he meets the threshold criteria under section 2.2 and further demonstrates that 
he is proceeding in good faith to comply with the procedures under Section 2.3 to obtain an 
amnesty permit. 

b. Any protection from zoning enforcement under this bylaw shall terminate when: 

1. a written determination is issued under this amnesty program that the criteria under 
Section 2.3 and this amnesty program cannot be satisfied; or 

2. it is determined that the property owner is not proceeding diligently with his amnesty 
application or 

3. the property owner's amnesty application is denied. A person is deemed not to be 
proceeding diligently if he does not receive an amnesty permit within twelve months from the date 
of issuance of the site approval letter under this program. 

c. This amnesty program shall expire on June 30, 2006 after which expiration the 
property will be subject to zoning enforcement. 

3.0 Additional Conditions for Grant of Local Amnesty Permit

of the building unless pre-existent elsewhere; and, any restoration required shall be consistent 
with the original architecture of the building. 

3.4 Outside storage areas shall be screened by fencing or landscaping.

Health. 

71 



3.7 Any code-related modifications to the annnesty unit and all other modifications to the 
building shall be designed so that appearance of the building remains as it is at the time of the 
application for the amnesty permit, and continued occupancy of the amnesty unit will not be more 
detrimental to the neighborhood in which the building is located or injurious to persons or property 
than the allowed use of the building absent the amnesty unit. 

3.8 The owner shall notify the Building Commissioner in writing, within 6 months of the lapse 
in use of the amnesty unit as such. 

4.0 New Accessory Units in Single Family Owner Occupied Dwellings

person claiming an interest in the property and which restricts the use of one or more units as 
rental units to a person or family whose income is 80% or less of the median income of Boston 
Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). 

4.4.1 Upon receiving the site approval under 4(a) above, the property owner shall file an 
application for an amnesty permit under this program with Cohasset Zoning Board of Appeals. 

5.0 Reporting

If a new construction, alteration, expansion/extension/enlargement, reconstruction, or 
replacement proposal requires both one or more variances from the area regulation of Section 5 
and this subsection's Site Plan Review, the applicant shall seek all variances from the Zoning 
Board of Appeals first, and then seek this review. Each of these reviews is independent of the 
other, and the grant of one or more variances does not mandate approval under this Site Plan 
Review process. 

Moved that the table of Uses in Section 4.3 of the Zoning Bylaws of the Town be hereby 
amended by adding a new note 12 at the end thereof that reads as follows: 

77 



"13. All residential uses shall be subject to Section 5.5." 

and, further, that the definitions in Section 2 of the Zoning Bylaws be hereby amended by the 
adding the following new definition: 

"Residential Gross Floor Area ("RGFA") - The sum of the Total Floor Area - Gross, as defined 
herein, of the above grade floors or portions of floors in a residential structure, excluding 
unfinished attics and attached or detached garages." 

and, further, that Section 5 of the Zoning Bylaw, Area Regulations, be amended by inserting a 
new sub subsection 5.5 to create a "large home site plan review process" as follows: 

5.5 LARGE HOUSE SITE PLAN REVIEW 

Notwithstanding the area requirements set forth in preceding subsections of this Section 5, and 
any variances obtained from same, the RGFA for any residential building or structure, in any 
residential district, to be constructed pursuant to a building permit issued on or after 11/1/03 
either as new construction or as an alteration, expansion/extension/enlargement, reconstruction 
or replacement of an existing residential building or structure, may not exceed the greater of 
3,500 square feet or 10% of the area of the lot up to a maximum of 6,000 square feet, absent 
review as follows. This threshold does not nullify the applicability of any of the other area 
regulations set forth in Section 5 that may or may not have an impact upon the calculation of 
RGFA. 

Where the RGFA exceeds these limits, the proposed work shall be submitted for Site Plan 
Review by the Planning Board under the standards of review set forth in Section 12.6 and rules 
and regulations as promulgated by the Planning Board. 

If a new construction, alteration, expansion/extension/enlargement, reconstruction or replacement 
proposal requires both one or more variances from the area regulations of Section 5 and this 
subsection's Site Plan Review, the applicant shall seek all variances from the Zoning Board of 
Appeals first, and then seek this review. Each of these reviews is independent of the other, and 
the grant of one or more variances does not mandate approval under this Site Plan Review 
process. 

Amendment offered by Thomas Callahan, member of the Board of Selectmen. 

At the end of the second paragraph, delete the phrase "and rules and regulations as promulgated 
by the Planning Board ," and place the period after "12.6". Then add at the end of the bylaw: 
"The Planning Board may promulgate rules and regulations to implement this bylaw."

Report of the Town Treasurer 

July 1,2002 -June 30, 2003 



In Fiscal 2003, the Treasurer / Collector's office continued an investment strategy that 
balances the safety, liquidity and yield of the Town's funds. Even though interest rates in 
the market continued to be down this year, investment income received for Fiscal Year 
2003 in the General Fund was $667,016, an increase of $63,888 over Fiscal Year 2002. 

In Fiscal Year 2003, the Town continued to implement the provisions of both MGL 
Chapter 60, Section 3C and 3D which allows the Town to include a check-off insert with 
tax tDills. As of June 30, 2003, the following funds have been collected: 

Town Scholarship Fund: $1,533.04 

Local Education Fund: $ 2,229.18 

Elderly & Disabled Taxation Fund: $ 3,1 77.26 

The Scholarship Fund will provide secondary school tuition assistance to deserving Town 
residents. These funds will be in addition to scholarships currently available to Town 
residents. 

The Educational Fund will provide supplemental educational funding for Cohasset Public 
Schools. Additionally, funds may be used for existing adult literacy programs. 

The Elderly / Disabled Fund will provide property tax relief for elderly and disabled 
Cohasset taxpayers who meet specific criteria established by the Elderly / Disabled Fund 
Committee. 

Unfortunately the annual donations to these funds have been minimal. Awards from the 
above funds will be made in future years once there are sufficient sums available.

implemented the new Customized Data payroll system. Many thanks to Nicole and 
Michael for all of their efforts.

REPORT OF THE COLLECTOR 

July 1,2002to June 30, 2003 



In Fiscal 2003, the Treasurer/Collector's office processed approximately 12,204 Real Estate tax 
bills, 784 Personal Property tax bills, 8,348 Motor Vehicle Excise tax bills and 10,376 
Water/Sewer bills. 

For the first time, the Treasurer/Collector's office began to accept tax payments via the internet. 
Residents are now able to log onto www.mcc.net , look up their real estate, personal property, 
water / sewer bill and send the payment to the Town either directly from their bank account or by 
credit card. The cost to users of making payments from a bank account is only 25 cents (less 
thank a stamp). The cost of using a credit card varies but averages 3% and is paid directly to the 
credit card company by the user. The participation has been growing steadily each billing cycle 
and feedback has been extremely positive. 

Once again considerable efforts were made to contact taxpayers and collect taxes in arrears. 
Tax liens were recorded on all subsequent Fiscal Year 2003 taxes totaling $77,335.83. 
Subsequent taxes are those outstanding balances for properties that were already in Tax Title. In 
addition, new Tax Liens were recorded on all outstanding Fiscal Year 2001 and 2002 real estate 
taxes totaling $39,043.18. 

Special thanks to staff members Linda Litchfield, Jane Henderson, Devon Noonan. who assisted 
in continuing the progress of the department.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF ASSESSORS 

The Property Tax Levy is the revenue a community can raise through real and 
personal property taxes. The property tax levy is the largest source of revenue 
for the Town of Cohasset. The property tax levy for Fiscal Year 2003 was 
$19,217,732.94 representing 62% of the $30,916,978.67 budget 

It is the responsibility of the Assessors' Office to establish fair market value on 
properties in the Town of Cohasset. During Fiscal Year 2003, the Assessors' 
Office conducted an analysis of all arms-length sales that occurred in the town 
during calendar year 2001. The sales trends in this appreciating real estate 
market were defined and interim adjustments were made to properties 
throughout the town. The adjustments were made in accordance with 
Department of Revenue (DOR) guidelines. The total valuation of the town was 
$1 ,602,813,423 with a tax rate of $1 1 .99 per thousand dollars of assessment 

At the Annual Town Meeting, the town meeting body adopted Section 4 of 
Chapter 73 of the acts of 1986 to grant an additional real estate tax exemption of 
not more than fifty (50) percent under clauses 17, 17c1/2, 17D, 22, 22A, 22B, 
22C, 22D, 22E, 37, 37A, 41, 41 B, 41 C, 42, & 43 of Section 5 of Chapter 59 of 
Massachusetts General Laws. Adopting this section has enabled the Assessors 
to increase all exemptions by fifty percent. 

The Board of Assessors welcomed Deputy Assessor, Mary Quill to Cohasset in 
January 2003. We would also like to acknowledge Assistant Assessor, Debra 
Krupczak and Administrative Assistant Devon Noonan for their efforts throughout 
the year.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE OPEN SPACE COMMITTEE 

The Open Space Committee is charged with implementing the goals and objectives in 
the Open Space and Recreation plan. The committee has chosen to focus on two areas 
this year, which will continue in 2004. 

Cohasset Go Green: This is an effort we are developing to help people learn how to 
manage their property to minimize pollution and environmental damage. We are working 
with the Board of Health and the Water Department to create a brochure on lawn care, 
and will be planning seminars with local garden clubs. We hope to make this an ongoing 
program. 

Open space protection: We have been working with other boards, committees and 
organizations, such as the Cohasset Conservation Trust and the Trustees of 
Reservations to evaluate properties for potential land acquisition or protection through 
conservation restrictions or easements. 

We have undergone some membership changes this year, and would like to thank Jim 
Shipsky and Karen Quigley for all their efforts.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT 



During the past year Cohasset has continued a pattern of moderate 
growth. Twelve new homes were permitted along with several substantial 
additions and alterations. 

The Zoning Board of Appeals approved a comprehensive permit for 200 
apartments at the former Norfolk Conveyor site. That and several other 
proposed developments could change the Town's growth pattern.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH 

Board membership remained the same with the reelection of Peggy S. Chapman. On 
reorganization, Stephen N. Bobo remained as Chairman, Peggy S. Chapman as Vice Chairman 
and Robin M. Lawrence as Clerl<. Joseph R. Godzik retired in August, but will remain as Health 
Agent on a part time basis. Tara N. Tradd serves as Office Manager/Food Inspector. The public 
health nurse continues to be Judy Fitzsimmons with Janet Bennett as her assistant. 

This year the Board of Health made increasing physical activity and promoting better nutrition one 
of its primary objectives in an effort to wage a war against the nation's obesity epidemic. With the 
cooperation of the Council on Elder Affairs, a walking program was promoted. Cooperating with 
the Towns of Scituate and Hingham we are exploring placing a trail within the right of way of the 
Greenbush rail corridor. This proposed trail would run from Hingham Center to the Greenbush 
Station, the end of the line. It would provide a walking and biking path thereby encouraging 
increased physical activity. The feasibility study is under way with public hearings to be held in 
2004. Working with school officials and the cafeteria contractor a nutrition advisory committee 
was formed the also the Board has encouraged the promotion of "healthy" snacks and drinks in 
vending machines, and providing more healthy choices in the cafeteria lines. 

Another of the Board's initiatives was taking on the writing for the Town's Stormwater 
Management Plan. The Plan has been approved by the State and will provide the town with a 
permit to discharge stormwater into the waters of the Commonwealth. The Plan is required to 
comply with the US Environmental Protection Agency's Phase II Rule requiring the discharge of 
stormwater. The plan will provide a schedule of actions to be taken over the next five years to 
come into compliance with the nine objectives of the Rule. 

The Board through its Chairman, Stephen Bobo, has been participating in wastewater issues. He 
is a member of the group working on the Little Harbor/Atlantic Avenue Central Sewer expansion. 
A revised Facility Plan schedule has been developed and was submitted to the State. Bobo is 
also on a new wastewater study committee, which will develop a "master plan" for wastewater for 
the entire Town. 

Water quality testing at Bassings Beach required the closure of the beach for swimming for a 
period during the summer. While no individual test resulted in closure, a prolonged period of 
testing resulted in exceeding a geometric mean, which also results in closure. The source of this 
microbiological pollution is unknown. 

We are grateful to all who assist us with our programs and clinics throughout the year with 
volunteer efforts and monetary donations.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 

The Cohasset Planning Board, under the authority granted by Massachusetts General Law, 
Chapter 41 , Section 81 A - Section 81 GG, and Chapter 40A, is charged with the adnninistration of 
subdivision control and site plan review of development projects. The Board also reviews and 
recommends changes to the town's zoning bylaw and map and is charged with preparing a 
master or study plan and reporting periodically regarding the condition of the town. In addition to 
these duties, the Board completed a number of specific planning tasks in 2003. 

The Board conducted hearings on a number of Zoning Bylaw amendments. These amendments 
spanned a wide number of issues including ledge preservation, lot coverage, building height, 
affordable housing, water resources district revision, and building permit and large home review. 
Zoning changes voted at town meeting included Zone A prohibitions within the Water Resource 
District, expansion of a portion of the Highway Business zoning district, a reduction in structural 
lot coverage and elimination of the special permit requirement to construct apartments in the 
Downtown Business zoning district. 

Work continued on development of the town's Geographic Information System (GIS) and 
mapping capabilities. The Master Plan project yielded important data on the number and location 
of permanently protected parcels in Cohasset as well as most likely development opportunities. 
Mapping for the Master Plan also included several environmental data layers such as floodplain, 
soils and wetlands mapping that have been displayed with local property boundary and zoning 
information for the first time. The Stormdrain Mapping Project, funded in part by a $60,000 
watershed grant from the state, resulted in the mapping and location of over 1500 drainage 
structures in Town as well as contour data and street locations including centerline and edge of 
pavement. Data for the Stormdrain Mapping Project was developed using high resolution aerial 
photography and highly accurate Global Positioning System (GPS) hand-held units. A computer 
server and user-friendly mapping software were purchased and await installation in Town Hall to 
provide employees and the public easy access to the Town's GIS data and mapping. 

The Planning Board participated in the efforts of the Growth and Development Committee as this 
group finalized its draft of a Master Plan for the town. A final draft was submitted to the Planning 
Board for comments in the fall of 2003 and was distributed for comment to other boards, 
committees and town employees in early December 2003. Next steps in the process include a 
detailed review by the Planning Board held over several meetings and an advertised public 
hearing. 

The Board continued to review and comment on planning activities for the downtown, particularly 
advocating that the MBTA locate the town's Greenbush rail station in the downtown area in 
concert with smart growth principles. 

The first applicant under the town's new Senior Multi-family Overlay District bylaw was King 
Taylor LLC, represented by town resident's David and Kelli Calhoun and partner Tom Ragno. The 
group filed a special permit application in July 2003 for a 105 unit age-restricted development that 
included 31 units of affordable housing on the 41 -acre former Hayes Estate. The Board granted 
the project preliminary approval in August 2003 and closed the public hearing on the project in 
December. A decision was expected in early 2004. 

The Planning Board continued to advocate that the proposed Avalon Bay Communities proposal 
for 200 units of mixed-income apartment housing was incompatible with town needs and that 
existing and proposed infrastructure of roads, water supply, sewer, transportation to serve the site 
were inadequate. 



136 



In addition, the Board conducted the following regular business: 

Held twenty-three (23) meetings 

Reviewed 20 Approval Not Required Under the Subdivision Control Law plans. 

The Board continued to monitor the Ox Pasture Lane subdivision and various site plan reviewed 

projects for compliance with conditions and applicable regulations.

The committee is pleased to report that Pay-As-You Throw (PAYT) continues to save the town 
money. Because of this savings we were able to reduce the sticker fee from $35.00 to $30.00 
this year. Our cost to SEMASS for disposing of our non-recyclable trash has been reduced and 
is now stabilizing. The Recycling Committee would like to thank the town's people for their efforts 
to reduce the amount of trash we have to send to SEAMASS. 

As in prior years the Recycling Committee continues to strive to find new markets for our 
recyclables. This year we introduced a system to recycle old cell phones. We send the phones 
collected to a vendor who reuses them or takes them apart and recycles the materials, if you 
have an old cell phone you may give it to one of the workers at the RTF and they will put it in a 
container. When the container is filled it is sent to the vendor at no cost and in return the town is 
reimbursed $2.00 for each phone that is in working order. 

Recycling in municipal buildings in Cohasset is a priority of the Recycling Committee. Town Hall 
is striving to improve its recycling efforts. A subcommittee of the Recycling Committee met with 
all Town Hall employees and went over with them ways to improve the town hall's recycling 
program. Our committee will be putting recycling bins for paper in all the offices and bottle 
recycling containers in high-use public areas of Town Hall. The next big project our committee 
will take on is working with the School Department looking for ways to improve recycling efforts in 
our three public school buildings. 

Please keep in mind that "Paint Day" is the last Saturday of each month starting in April and 
continuing through October. The hours are 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. We would also like to make 
everyone aware that on paint day we only accept oil base paints. Latex paints are not hazardous 
and only need to be left out to dry before placing them in your PAYT bag for disposal. (A material 
like kitty litter added to the paint speeds the drying process.) Please do not leave paint cans 
outside of the shed on davs that it is not opened for Paint Day. Cans of paint left outside the 
shed violate DEP regulations and could result in a fine to the town. We would like to thank the 
town's people for their cooperation and support of this all-volunteer recycling effort by your 
Recycling Committee. 

Our Hazardous Waste Day was held in conjunction with Hull last year and we are planning to do 
the same this year, as the combined effort worked out well for both communities. Hazardous 
Waste Day this year will be on June 6, 2004 in Hull. Look for location information at a later date. 
We urge people to bring all their hazardous waste for disposal on that day. 

An important reminder from the Recycling Committee: The fine for "illegal dumping" is in excess 
of $200.00. "Illegal dumping" occurs anytime trash or recyclables are left at the transfer station 
when the RTF is closed to the public, including Thursdays when employees are working on site. 
Please respect and cooperate with our staff at the RTF as they work with your Recycling 
Committee and the public to improve recycling and cut down on the costs of removing our trash. 

Respectt'ully submitted.

REPORT OF THE EMERGECNY DISPATCH CENTER 

I hereby submit the Annual Report of the Cohasset Emergency Dispatch Center 
for the year ending January 31 ,2003. This year again was a very busy year for all 
dispatch personnel. This department received, logged and dispatched 12,655 
incidents for The Police & Fire Departments. 

1 ,560 E-91 1 calls were received covering a wide range of emergencies from 
reported fires and medical emergencies to assaults and other crimes. 

This Department is also working with the Town Assessors Office updating the E- 
91 1 database; this has become a full time job due to the new housing 
developments in town. 

In November 2003 voters at the special town meeting approved an alerting 
system known as (Zetron) for the dispatch center and the Fire Department. This 
state of the art system will stream line the way Dispatch notifies Fire Department 
personnel at fire headquarters, to respond to emergency situations. 

In house training for all dispatchers continued in 2003.Dispachers are trained in 
CPR, First Aid and new procedures. 

I would like to thank Dispatchers Patricia Douglas, Christopher Grant, Patricia 
Lowery, John Hussey, and Sasha Geddes for their dedication and service to the 
Town Of Cohasset. 

I would also like to thank Chief Of Police Robert W Jackson, Fire Chief Roger W, 
Lincoln and Town Manager Mark W. Haddad for their continued support of the 
Cohasset Emergency Dispatch Center.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 

2003 was a landmark year for the Water Department. During 2003 the Water 
Commission had many highly significant achievements, including: 

• Award. On May 8 the Cohasset Water Department was recognized as one of 
the top 10% of all water systems in Massachusetts by being awarded the 
2003 Public Water System Award from the Massachusetts Department of 
Environmental Protection (DEP) and the New England Water Works 
Association. 

• Wholesale Sale of Water. In November, after almost two years of 
negotiations, we finalized contracts to sell up to 306,000 gallons per day to 
the Linden Ponds development in Hingham over the next 20 years. This 
contract will provide substantial additional revenue to the Water Department 
budget to help us to continue rehabilitating the Cohasset water system. 

• $20,880,000 low interest loan. In December we were awarded a 2% low 
interest $20,880,000 loan from the DEP Drinking Water State Revolving Fund 
(SRF) program to rehabilitate about 10 miles of the distribution system and 
make upgrades to the Lily Pond Water Treatment Plant. 

• $479,500 low interest loan. In December we were also awarded a 2% low 
interest loan from the DEP Clean Water Act State Revolving Fund (SRF) 
program to reduce nonpoint source pollution in the watershed for Lily Pond 
and the Aaron River Reservoir. 

• $255,000 Grant. In December we also received a $255,000 grant from the 
DEP to reduce nutrient loading to Lily Pond which will help improve drinking 
water quality. 

• 25**^ Anniversary. On May 1 1 we commemorated the 25*^ Anniversary of the 
Aaron River Reservoir and Lily Pond Water Treatment Plant. 

WATER COMMISSIONERS. At the 2003 Town Election, Water Commissioner 
John McNabb was reelected. At the Board's reorganization meeting in April, 
commissioner McNabb was re-elected as Chairman, Commissioner Robert 
Kasameyer was re-elected Vice-Chairman, and Commissioner Glenn Pratt was 
re-elected Clerk. 

THE COHASSET WATER DEPARTMENT provides water for domestic 
consumption and fire protection to about 90% of the Town of Cohasset. Our 
service area does not include the North Cohasset area which is serviced by the 
Aquarion Water Company of Massachusetts (formerly known as the Hingham 
Mass-American Water Company). The Cohasset Water Department system 
encompasses about 36 miles of water mains, 2,41 1 service connections, and 
359 fire hydrants. During 2003, a total of 268,404,800 gallons of water were 
produced and pumped to the distribution system. American Water Services, Inc. 
continues as the contractor responsible for the operation and maintenance of the 
Water Department under the direction and control of the elected Board of Water 
Commissioners. 



146 



PUBLIC WATER SYSTEM AWARD. On Drinking Water Day, May 8, the 
Cohasset Water Department was honored in a ceremony at Massasoit 
Community College and was presented with a Massachusetts Public Water 
System Award for our efforts to provide a safe, clean drinking water supply to our 
customers. This award, given annually, recognizes community water suppliers for 
their outstanding performance in several key areas of operation and recognizes 
the award recipients as one of the top 10% of all water systems in the state. 
Water Commissioner Rob Kasameyer accepted the award on behalf of the Water 
Department. 

WHOLESALE SALE OF WATER. In November, following almost two years to 
extensive negotiations, the Water Commissioners signed contracts to sell up to 
306,000 gallons of water per day to the Erickson Communities Development, 
Linden Pond, in Hingham for the next 20 years. Commissioner Kasameyer 
coordinated the negotiations for this wholesale sale of water, which will provide 
funds for the Water Department that will help us to continue our aggressive 
system improvements program. We have more than enough water to be able to 
sell to Linden Pond without jeopardizing Cohasset residents - the safe yield of 
our surface water supplies is 5.2 million gallons per day, which is more than five 
times the average daily demand that we will have even after including the water 
that will be sold to Linden Pond. 

The regulatory process required to get the necessary state permits to make this 
sale includes the submission of an application for a determination of 
insignificance by the Water Resources Commission (the "WRC") under the 
Interbasin Transfer Act (the "IBTA") for a transfer of the Town's water sources, 
and a water withdrawal permit from the Department of Environmental Protection 
("DEP") under the Water Management Act (the "WMA") to authorize increased 
withdrawals by Cohasset from its water sources of more than 100,000 gpd. The 
regulatory process also includes the development of an Operation Plan that 
increases the minimum release of water from the reservoir system to maintain 
and improve the aquatic and wetland resources associated with Bound Brook. A 
Drought Management Plan is also being developed as part of the regulatory 
process related to the wholesale and transfer of water. The Water Commission 
was assisted in the preparation of these applications by Tutela Engineenng and 
GZA Engineering. 

25"^" ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION MAY 11. On May 11 we commemorated 
the 25"^ Anniversary of the construction of the Aaron River Reservoir and Lily 
Pond Water Treatment Plant, which in 1978 transformed Cohasset from a water- 
poor community to a water-rich community. Over 50 Cohasset residents, along 
with Senator Robert Hedlund and Selectmen Merle Brown and Fred Koed, joined 
us for the 25'^ Anniversary celebration, which was coordinated by Commissioner 
Pratt, at the Reservoir. We unveiled a monument on the dam which recognized 
the Water Commissioners who built the Reservoir and Plant, and we presented 
plaques to people who have helped the Water Commission over the years. 



147 



BOTTLED COHASSET WATER. At the May 11 event we distributed bottled 
Cohasset Drinking Water that was collected from the Lily Pond Water Treatment 
Plant and bottled for us by Monadnock Water. In December we produced another 
batch of our bottled water that is available free at the Plant. 

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT. Our fiscal situation continues to be excellent. 
Through skillful management of existing financial resources, we have been able 
to continue our aggressive system-wide capital improvements program without 
raising the water rates since they were last increased in 1997. Since 1997, we 
have expended over $13,000,000 in capital improvements projects - which is 
over 6 times the $2,130,000 in spending that the rate increase was planned to 
fund. We have been able to stretch these funds through measures such as the 
careful examination and use of our debt structure, prudent expenditure of our 
occasional surpluses, and additional income from the System Development 
Charge which was established in 2002. The Water Department is entirely self- 
supporting, as an Enterprise Fund, from user fees and other fees and charges, 
including the fire hydrant rental fee from the Town, and does not receive any 
property tax revenue from the Town of Cohasset. 

GRANTS. We applied for and were awarded a $20,880,000 low interest 2% loan 
(limited to $12,000,000 in the first year) from the Safe Drinking Water Act State 
Revolving Fund (SRF), which provides low interest 2% loans for water system 
infrastructure improvements, which would help fund our 20 year long range 
capital improvements plans for the distribution system and treatment plant. The 
Water Commission applied for and received a $255,000 grant from the Section 
319 program to pay 60% of the cost for a project to reduce nutrient loading into 
Lily Pond from nonpoint source pollution and stormwater runoff in the Peppermint 
Brook watershed. We also received a $479,000 low interest 2% loan from the 
Clean Water Act SRF to help us to finance the nonpoint source pollution 
measures needed to reduce nutrient loading to Lily Pond and the Aaron River 
Reservoir that aren't covered by the 31 9 grant. 

DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS. In 2003 we rehabilitated about 1.3 
miles of the distribution system, including the replacement of 2,900 feet of 
undersized water mains on South Main Street (Beechwood St. - Scituate line), 
1,000 feet of undersized mains on Hill Street, 705 feet on Bancroft Road, 650 
feet on Oak Street, and 1,050 feet on Norfolk Road. We also replaced 
undersized valves at the corner of Beechwood Street and Doane Street and 
replaced the pipe, which was leaking, under Cunningham Bridge. These 
projects resulted in an increase in fire flows, to better protect public safety, and 
water service in those areas. Commissioner Pratt closely monitors every step of 
all of our construction projects to make sure that the costs are kept under control 
and that the projects are conducted properly. 



148 



FIRE HYDRANT IMPROVEMENTS. In 2003 we replaced 34 fire hydrants and 
installed 17 new hydrants. Many of the new hydrants have been placed on dead 
ends to help improve water quality by allowing us to flush the water mains in 
those streets, as well as improving fire protection. Our distribution system 
improvements during 2003 have increased fire flows at fire hydrants on Doane 
Street, Bancroft Road, Norfolk Road, Hill Street, and South Main Street. We 
replaced the older and substandard hydrants that were located on Nichols Road. 

LILY POND TREATMENT PLANT IMPROVEMENTS. In 2003 we were very 
active in making capital improvements and upgrades to the Treatment Plant to 
implement the Capital Improvement Plan which was prepared by Weston & 
Sampson engineers, including: installation of Variable Frequency (VFD) Drives 
and energy efficient motors in the High Lift Pumps, repainting of the Pump Room 
and the Tank Room, replacement of outside lighting, the replacement of the roof 
mounted exhaust fans, new stairs installed outside of the back of the Plant, 
adding a railing to the second level entrance in the front of the Plant, adding 
handicapped accessible signage, the installation of grated hatch covers in the 
Pump Room, an upgrade to the SCADA program to better monitor plant 
functions, and the replacement of all building locks and padlocks. 

BEYOND COMPLIANCE. The Water Commission strives to provide the highest 
quality dhnking water and water service to Cohasset. While we meet or exceed 
all applicable state and federal water quality regulations, we also take action 
above and beyond what is required, including: our taste & odor study to identify 
the existing taste & odor issues in our drinking water and to remediate them 
(taste & odor are not regulated), the installation of streamflow gauges in the 
watershed to help us monitor the flow of water in the water supply so we can 
better protect the integrity of our water resources (also not required), and since 
2000 we have voluntarily tested for levels of disinfection byproducts (DBP's) such 
as Trihalomethanes and Haloecetic Acids in the distribution system so we could 
be better prepared to reduce those levels when we were required to meet 
regulatory standards for DBP's in 2004. 

TASTE & ODOR STUDY. While we have spent millions of dollars to rehabilitate 
water mains, upgrade the Treatment Plant, and protect watershed quality, and 
our water meets or exceeds all applicable drinking water health standards, we 
are aware that many customers have concerns about the taste & odor of their tap 
water. In November we began a taste & odor study of our tap water with a 
preliminary round of sampling. In January 2004 we will send a questionnaire to 
all of our customers to get feedback about the taste, odor, and appearance of our 
tap water, and then will sample 30 or more homes. This study will identify the 
characteristics of the water that contribute to taste & odor concems which will 
then help us to determine the causes and then to develop a plan to improve the 
taste & odor of our tap water. 



149 



WATERSHED PROTECTION. In 2003 we made major strides to protect the 
quality of our drinking water supplies. The ENSR Lily Pond Limnology & Waters 
Edge Report was completed, that recommended among other things that we take 
steps to reduce nutrient loading from stormwater pollution to the Pond. We then 
applied for and received a $255,000 state 319 Nonpoint source Pollution Grant to 
reduce nutrient loading 50% from the Peppermint Brook watershed. In addition, 
we keep track of the known threats to watershed quality, completed quarterly 
monitoring of surface water in the watershed, and test water in bedrock fractures 
to identify potential contaminants (none detected so far). In August we received a 
$5,000 grant from the state Riverways Program to install six streamflow gauges 
in the watershed for Lily Pond and the Aaron River Reservoir, which will 
continually keep track of the level of water and the flow of water through the 
watershed. We also are working with the state Department of Conservation and 
Recreation to get them to adjust the state watershed line north of Lily Pond to 
conform to our more accurate watershed delineation for that area. At the March 
Annual Town Meeting, the Zoning Bylaws were revised to protect the Zone A 
area and the Zoning Map was revised to show the Zone A area 

AVALON HOUSING DEVELOPMENT. In 2003 we submitted numerous 
comments to the Zoning Board of Appeals to urge them to deny the proposed 
200 unit Avalon housing development, which would potentially discharge 40,000 
gallons per day of sanitary wastewater, which would have nutrients, into the Lily 
Pond watershed. When the ZBA approved the Avalon project in October, we 
appealed the approval to state land court. The appeal was still pending at the 
end of 2003. 

OTHER DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS. We reviewed and submitted comments 
on the proposed Cedarmere development, which is only partially located in the 
watershed district. We also reviewed the Cook Estate development, which would 
have minimal or no impact on water resources if the groundwater discharge area 
is located outside the Lily Pond watershed and the Zone II of the wellfields, as 
currently proposed. 

WATER BILL FORMAT IMPROVED. In 2003 we revised the water bills to 
provide information to customers regarding the total gallons used in the quarter 
being billed, described the components of the bill to show how much of the bill 
was based on the amount of water consumed, and added a table showing how 
much water was used for each of the previous four quarters and how much the 
customer was billed for that water use each quarter. 

SECURITY OF THE WATER SYSTEM. Since the attacks of Sept 11, 2001, the 
Water Commission has made all reasonable steps to protect the security of the 
water system for any potential threat. In October, 2003 we issued an RFP for 
proposals to prepare a Vulnerability Analysis (VA) and to revise our Emergency 
Response Plan (ERP), as required by the federal Bioterrosim Act. In November 
we awarded the contract to Applied Risk Management of Boston, which will 



150 



complete the VA prior to the July 1 deadline and revise the ERP by December 31 
as also required. The VA/ERP, when completed, will provide more guidance to 
help us to better improve our security to protect the Water Department's assets 
and drinking water quality. 

ONGOING PUBLIC EDUCATION PROGRAM. The Water Commission has an 
active public education program, which includes our annual Water Quality Report 
which is mailed to every household in Cohasset by July 1 of each year as 
required by state and federal regulations, our newsletter, Your Water 
Department, which is sent with each quarterly bill, and numerous press releases. 
In 2003 we established a web page at www.cohassetwater.orq which is being 
developed to be an effective communications medium. 

SOURCE WATER ASSESSMENT PLAN. In August the Massachusetts 
Department of Environmental Protection completed a Source Water Assessment 
Plan (SWAP) for our surface water sources. The SWAP itemized potential 
threats to water supply quality and made a number of recommendations for 
action. Below is a summary of the SWAP recommendations and our progress on 
implementing them:

WATER POLICY & CONFERENCES. Water Commission Chairman John 
McNabb gave a Poster Presentation (which presented the award winning Water 
Quality Report that we mail to all town residents every year) at the EPA Source 
Water Protection Conference which was held in Washington DC in June. In 
October McNabb chaired a panel of local officials discussing how local 
government can protect drinking water at the New England Water Supply 
Protection Conference sponsored by Clean Water Action which was held in 
Worcester. In November McNabb testified at the Massachusetts Executive Office 
of Environmental Affairs budget hearing where he requested the state to restore 
funds to the Watershed initiative. In December McNabb attended the Water 
Resources Conference held at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

ELLMS MEADOW WELLFIELD. In 2003 our Pump Test Application for the 
Ellms Meadow Wellfield was approved by DEP for up to 170,000 gallons per day. 
Our plans to rebuild the Ellms Meadow pumphouse in 2003 were delayed 
because of a bid protest that has been decided in our favor, and we are now 
planning to rebuild the pumphouse and reactivate the wellfield in the Spring of 
2004. 

SOHIER STREET WELLS. These wells have to be relocated because they are 
located too close to the Greenbush right-of-way. The estimated $250,000 to find 
and establish a new site is being reimbursed by the MBTA. In 2003 we had to 
suspend our efforts to find a new site for the wells because of the seven month 
hold on the Greenbush project. When the hold was lifted in Fall 2003 we were 
able to continue finding a new site, which we plan to finalize in 2004. 

AARON RIVER RESERVOIR DAM AND BOUND BROOK CONTROL 
STRUCTURE. In 2003 the Water Commission retained Weston & Sampson 
Engineers, Inc. to conduct visual dam safety inspections of both the Aaron River 
Reservoir Dam and the Bound Brook Control Structure, conduct a seismic 
stability analysis for the Aaron River Reservoir Dam, and prepare Operations and 
Maintenance Plans for both structures. This work was conducted as required by 
state Dam Safety Regulations. Draft inspection reports and O&M Plans were 
prepared and are being reviewed by the Board and the Water Department. The 
inspection reports include recommendations for routine maintenance and repairs 
for the dams. The recommended work is underway and should be completed in 
Spring 2004 at which time the inspection reports will be finalized for submission 
to the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Office of Dam 
Safety (ODS). We also started to clear all the brush and vegetation from the dam 
and to replace riprap where needed, to restore the dam as much as possible to 
its original condition. The Water Commission also retained Weston & Sampson 
to conduct a dam breach analysis and prepare a Draft Emergency Action Plan 
(EAP) for the Aaron River Reservoir Dam. The EAP includes a map illustrating 
the potential inundation area due to flooding in the event of a breaching failure of 
the Aaron River Dam. The inundation area extends into North Scituate. 
Accordingly, the Board has informed the Town of Scituate and will be finalizing 
the EAP in early 2004. The EAP will be included as part of the emergency 
management plans for both Cohasset and Scituate and will be submitted to the 
Massachusetts ODS. 

LAWSUITS. In 2003 we settled a lawsuit against us from Westwood Limited 
Properties, owner of the site of the Scituate Hill Water Storage Tank, where we 
agreed to provide an additional $225,000 for the taking of the permanent 
easement for the location of the tank on their property. In 2003 the Water 
Commission was sued by the owners of the Wolf Pit property, which we took by 
eminent domain in 2001 to protect the water supply, and that suit was still 
pending at the time of this report. 



153 



COOPERATION WITH OTHER TOWN DEPARTMENTS. In 2003 we 
cooperated with other Town Departments and other Towns in many ways, 
including: 

Land Acquisition - we contributed $50,000 to the cooperative effort to 

purchase the Barnes Reservation land. 

Department of Public Works - CWD borrows tools, saws, cold patch from the 

Town DPW. CWD contributed a used truck to the DPW. We relocated four of 

our hydrants on Forest Ave. for the construction of a new sidewalk. 

Tree & Park - CWD requests yearly for the banking to be cut back behind the 

treatment facility, and Tree and Park always does so when requested. 

Cemetery - CWD provided water for Woodside and Gold Star mothers' 

memorial several years ago and also we shut off and turn the water on a 

seasonal basis. 

Sewer - CWD and the Sewer Dept. work together to compile information to 

get water and sewer bills out together. The Sewer Dept. responds to marking 

and locating of sewer lines and manholes. 

Treasurer/Collector- Sharing of information in regards to quarterly billing. If 

they get a change they give it to CWD. If CWD gets a change that 

information is given to the Treasurer/Collector. 

Building Inspector - Sends copies of building logs for new additions and 

dwellings 

Scituate Water Department -Exchange of fittings between both departments. 

If any lab equipment fails they will do some testing for us. In the past CWD 

has also borrowed tools, meters, and meter pit lids, and vice versa. 

Hanover Water Department - CWD borrowed Hanover Water Foreman to 

locate main & service by the use of their M Scope while ours was being 

serviced. Plus parts and fittings were borrowed, which we did not have 

immediately available. 

Aquarion (Hinqham) Water Co. - Worked with Aquarion Water to remove a 

hydrant on Forest Avenue. 



154 



NEW STAFF. In 2003 we welcomed our new Water Department Superintendent, 
Hugh Spurway, and new employee Ted Lavin. 

CONCLUSION. The strength and successes of today's Water Department have 
been possible because of the vision and extraordinary efforts of the Water 
Commission in the 1970's, when they built the Aaron River Reservoir and the Lily 
Pond Treatment Plant which turned Cohasset from a water-poor town to a water- 
rich town. During 2003, the Cohasset Water Commission has taken many major 
steps which have succeeded in producing continued improvements to fire 
protection, water quality, and watershed protection for the people of Cohasset. 
We have accomplished these important achievements within our current rate 
structure, since our financial position remains excellent. The Board of Water 
Commissioners and the Water Department would like to thank all the Town 
officials, boards, and committees who have assisted the Water Department and 
the Board throughout 2003. We will continue to seek improvements to the water 
system in the coming years for the benefit of all ratepayers and the Town of 
Cohasset.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SEWER COMMISSION 



The Sewer Commission has spent considerable time over the last few years to resolve control 
problems at our grinder pumps, and we believe that the corrections made in 2003 should finally 
conclude this work. Except for some homes on Hull Street, the North Cohasset sewer system 
employs grinder pumps at each property, in order to discharge sewer to the force main in the 
street. Additionally, the Central Cohasset District has approximately 60 grinder pumps. Based 
on many inadvertent pump shutdowns in North Cohasset. over the first winter of use, the 
manufacturer made controls modifications, which corrected the problem. However, outages 
continued to occur in lightning storms, culminating in massive outages during storms in the 
summer of 2002. The manufacturer analyzed the equipment and determined that additional surge 
protection was needed in the control panels. This work was done in late spring 2003 and the 
units worked properly throughout the year, successfully enduring at least one local long lasting 
lightning storm. The Commission has also been completing its Emergency Preparedness efforts 
over the last year, relative to its wastewater facilities. Such efforts include ensuring infrastructure 
security as well as being prepared for extended power outages by ensuring reliable remote 
emergency power generation. 

The last part of the Central District expansion was completed this year. Construction on the 
expansion started in 1999 and was completed in 2001, but at the November 13, 2000 Special 
Town Meeting the town authorized additional funds to make the Central Plant more attractive. 
These were used to change the roof line, add trim, change colors, install pergola type framing to 
soften the visual impact of the plant, and provide additional wood screening and landscaping at 
the treatment plant and pump station. This work has now been completed and the Commission 
and the neighbors are pleased with the end result. Not all houses are connected to the new 
sewer systems - about 3% in North Cohasset and 15% in Central are still outstanding. The 
Commission is pursuing these aggressively. 

As concerns the Little Harbor/Atlantic Avenue project, the commission met with residents over the 
year, and helped to coordinate data collection efforts on affected home lots in order to facilitate 
low-pressure service designs for the next phase of work. The municipal collection system design 
plans for the project are currently at 90% complete. Although the schedule for the next phases 
has been extended as a result of delayed school construction reimbursements from the State, 
work on the design has been proceeding at an uninterrupted pace and has also been coordinated 
with water system improvements in the area. It is anticipated that future Town Meeting 
appropriations will be solicited as needed to keep the project on-track in compliance with DEP 
negotiations relative to the Second Amended Final Judgment. 

The developers of the proposed Cedarmere project off of Beechwood Street came before the 
Board several times to request sewering for the senior housing development. The Commission 
declined their request based on a variety of reasons, chief among them being that this part of 
town was not contemplated for sewer and therefore was not in the Central District and also, that 
any additional capacity available in our Central Plant is earmarked for the Little Harbor project. 
The developers have now filed litigation in order to press their case. The Commission had 
declined similar requests from other developers in previous years. 

The commission continued its infiltration/inflow program in 2003, to reduce the influence of storms 
and high water on the original collection system piping. Our TV inspections of suspected 
underground mains identified branches with abnormal flow patterns in the harbor area. The TV 
inspections were followed up by smoke tests, which revealed several sources of I/I, all of which 
are being corrected. We also replaced all the watertight manhole cover gaskets and installed 
several manhole inserts in order to tighten up that potential source of inflow. A program of testing 
and grout sealing is also underway to eliminate I/I entering joints in "problem" mains of the 
original collection system. 



156 



The Sewer Commission has also provided the Greenbush Project with comments relative to 
future sewer facilities. The Commission has recommended and been granted the placement of 
several sewer sleeves to accommodate future sewers within the Town. It is anticipated that 
future sewers will involve communal type systems or satellite treatment facilities and these 
sleeves will ensure that wastewater can be properly conveyed across the railroad right-of-way 
without significant cost to the Town. A recently formed Wastewater Committee is now evaluating 
wastewater options for non-sewered areas in order to develop a comprehensive wastewater plan 
for the Town given Title 5 impacts since 1995 and more recent environmental information. 

The plant operated very successfully throughout the year, with effluent concentrations far below 
the permitted amounts. However, in 2003, the plant experienced two overflow incidents, each 
during a period of high rainfall and sewer flows. We concluded that the first two incidents were 
caused by partially clogged filter membranes possibly as a result of relatively high concentrations 
of alum in Cohasset's drinking water, simultaneous with high wet weather influent flows. To 
correct this we have instituted an automatic dosing system to periodically inject citric acid into the 
membranes to remove this inorganic fouling. The second overflow was caused by a controls 
malfunction. In response, we have installed a separate level indicator connected to the plant 
anunciator panel. In the event of high levels and control failure, the annunciator system will alert 
the plant operators, who can then correct the problem. Veolia Environment (previously US 
FilterA/ivendi) was also awarded a five (5) year contract to continue as the operations firm for the 
Cohasset wastewater system. 

Sewer Commissioner, and Chairman, Raimund G. "Gary" Vanderweil, Jr. retired from the 
Commission as of the town elections this spring, with John Beck elected to take his place on the 
Commission. Gary Vanderweil was appointed to the Commission on November 1, 1984 to fill an 
unexpired term, and remained a member until 2003. He continued to attend Commission 
meetings through 2003 to help provide an orderly transition. 

Starting in 1984 he worked with Sewer Commissioners Charles DeSantis and Edward "Ted" Guild 
in developing a plan to provide sewer to North Cohasset and to expand the existing Central 
Sewer District. The plan was named the "Ward Plan" after Joseph Ward, the Civil Engineer who 
helped develop it, and involved conveying the sewer from the two new areas to the Hull 
Wastewater Treatment Plant. In 1988, just as the Town was ready to move forward on this, the 
state-funding program was delayed and modified. This resulted in a hiatus of several years, after 
which the then Sewer Commissioners - Henry Rattenbury, Ted Guild, and Gary Vanderweil - 
working with the consulting engineering firm of Tutela Engineering Associates, developed a 
modified plan, which was the basis for our present system. The modified plan consisted of 
expanding the existing central plant in Jacobs Meadow to accommodate the expansion of the 
Central District, while discharging the wastewater from the new North Cohasset District to the Hull 
Treatment Plant. 

All those who have worked with Gary Vanderweil recognize that he has made an important, 
lasting contribution to the Town. The clarity and thoroughness of his presentations or viewpoints 
at innumerable hearings, meetings with other Town boards, and Town Meeting were always 
highly valued as well reasoned and informative. His work gave evidence not only to his 
intellectual capability but his personal commitment to the Town. And his leadership as Chairman 
of the Commission for the past five years set us safely on the path into the future. Finally, his 
willingness to continue to serve as an Associate, non-voting member, provides a vital link 
between where we were to where we are and where we will be.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COUNCIL ON ELDER AFFAIRS 

The more things change, the more they stay the same. This was the CEA's 
reality in the past year. While interest grew and expanded into new activities 
such as the Book Club, Strength and Stretch for over 50, Walking Club and Chair 
Yoga, we continued to be challenged by our limited space and dwindling financial 
resources. Likewise, key areas of concern for our elders continued with ever 
changing fields of medical insurance, soaring prescription costs and the growing 
financial burdens of maintaining a home in Cohasset while, again, resources for 
assistance were choked by a failing economy. 

We rose to such challenges by bringing in grant-funded programs and 
connecting with volunteer services to augment what the staff could offer. Our 
SHINE (Serving the Health Insurance Need of Elders) is very active. Here at the 
CEA, we are fortunate to have a SHINE Counselor, Carol Barrett, who is 
available at all times to assist seniors and their family members with any and ail 
health insurance concerns. Many people feel free to just stop by the Center and 
ask for information. Carol is always here and willing to answer all their questions. 
The SHINE program and Carol are a tremendous resource for our seniors. The 
other program that we were able to tap into was the S.S E.S. 3-B grant money for 
the senior visitation program in which Carol Barrett matches volunteers with 
seniors who are at home and benefit from having a new friend. 

We continued to participate as the lead agency for the MTB-5 transportation 
program for the towns of Cohasset, Hingham, Hull, Norwell and Scituate. The 
Executive Office of Elder Affairs funded this program in full for the last three 
years. Due to the state fiscal crisis, we were sorry to say goodbye to Dee Dee 
Jakaus who did such an outstanding job with transportation by scheduling three 
vans every day. Dee Dee will always be in our minds and hearts, she has been 
the main tray to the staff and seniors. We are so grateful for her devoted time, 
help and friendship. We give special thanks to Dee Dee for the tremendous help 
she has been to all of us at CEA. 

Transportation again consumed a great deal of CEA time, energy and resources. 
In addition to scheduling and providing rides to and from nutritional programs, the 
CEA van transported seniors to local medical appointments, food shopping, 
hairdressing' appointments, library visits and trips around town and out of town to 
the Christmas Tree Shop, malls and out to lunches. We were all happy to have 
the new Ford van replace the old 1984 Chevy van. We want to give special 
thanks to Ham Tewksbury and Jim Donohue for the wonderful job they both do 
for the elders at CEA. As CEA drivers, they have received special training to 
operate the Dodge handicap lift that accommodates wheelchairs. This type of 
transport takes a lot of time, energy and patience. From year to year the clients 
change, and the drivers must recreate new friendships with each new passenger. 



158 



Volunteer transportation is still the paramount issue for elders. Our volunteers 
are very dedicated in providing effective and efficient transportation five days a 
week. Fifty different drivers offer their services one day a month for a three to five 
hour span. In reviewing the past two years, we realized a 48% turnover of 
individual drivers. We are, therefore, all aware of the constant need to recruit, 
train and place each and everyone who drives. In the future, we will need to 
advocate and develop a transportation strategy for all the south shore towns that 
are transportation isolated. The goal will be to create a range of traditional and 
nontraditional options to meet the growing transit requirements. We believe we 
need to have two representatives to speak on behalf of the elders on the south 
shore. There is much need for a technical working group to provide oversight, 
study and make a major policy determination and strategy approval mechanism 
for solutions and development within the study. The primary focus should be to 
acquire input through public forums, interviews and information gatherings. It 
should potentially pave the way for a regional transit authority thereby improving 
the overall transportation system. 

Volunteer Opportunities... 

The CEA relays greatly on the wonderful volunteers who assist us in the many 
services we provide. As we take residency in the South Shore Community 
Center, we have had the pleasure of having new people of all ages join in the 
network of volunteers in order to make our work complete, and less stressful on 
the staff. We anticipate the need for more and more volunteers of all ages. The 
value of the volunteers working at CEA is the following. 

*Van Drivers: 40 drivers per month, x 25 (days in the month) = 1,000 per 

month X 12 (months in year) = 12,000 hrs per year x $16.50 per hr. 
Total value $198,000 

Kitchen Assistance: 6 assistants, 18 hrs x 3 days a wk. (meals are served) 

= 54 hrs. per. wk. x 52 wks. = 2808 x $16.50 per hr. Total value $ 46,332 

Office Assistances: 7 Assistants wk. = 49 hrs per wk. x 52 wks. = 2548 x 
$16.50 Total Value $42,042 

Instructors: 8 Instructors x three hrs per wk. = 24 hrs x 52 wks. = 1248 x 

$16.50 Total Value $20,592 

Escort Shopping: 1 Person x 3hrs per wk. x 52 wks = 1 56 hrs a yr. x $1 6.50 
Total Value $ 2,574 

Visitation (Friendly visiting of elders at home) Two hrs. Per wk. x six clients = 
12 hrs X 52 wks. = 624 X $15.50 Total Value $10,296 



159 



CEA Board Meeting 12 Directors x 3 hrs per month = 36 hrs x 12 months = 

432 X $16.50 Total Value $ 7,128 

Special IVIailing Support (Nov 2003) 14 People x three hrs. 42 hrs x $16.50 
Total Value $ 693 

Van Maintenance: 4 x a yr. @ 3 hrs x 12 hrs x $16.50 Total Value $ 198 

$327,657.00 this is the total value in Dollars set by the Executive Office of Elder 
Affairs relating to In-Kind value to the Town of Cohasset. 

information and Referrals ~ 

Our trained staff and volunteers answer an average of fifty phone call per day. It 
is hard to imagine the number of requests that come to the CEA. The calls ask 
for information on a wide variety of elder issues. Many concern transportation, 
housing, medical, home help, outreach or referrals to other agencies that service 
elders in Cohasset. A growing number of calls from "non eiders" were noted for 
this past fiscal year. Increasingly more adult children are concerned about aging 
parents and calls are even received from out of state. Calls are always returned 
in a prompt and caring manner. Many callers have commented on the pleasant 
manner in which the phones are answered and the great response to each caller. 
The outreach worker also has assisted the Cohasset Police Department with any 
emergencies that arise regarding elders. Carol Barrett has a telephone 
reassurance program along with the TRIAD (Are You OK?) program. These 
programs bring a service of safety and contact with the outside world. The "Are 
You OK?" is a computerized system but is managed by a staff person who will 
contact the family if the elder does not answer the phone. 

Outreach: The Outreach Program at the Cohasset Elder Affairs does an 
outstanding job providing the elders of Cohasset with a friendly face to listen to 
their concerns and offer assistance. Carol Barrett spends many hours meeting 
with elders and their families to ensure that the best possible services are being 
provided. Once again in the past year, we saw a tremendous increase in the 
number of crisis cases that ran gamut of alcohol, abuse to financial exploitation. 
We are fortunate to have the cooperation of the Board of Health, Police and Fire 
Dept. to assist as needed. Our Outreach Coordinator, Carol Barrett, brings a 
wealth of knowledge from her days in nursing. 

Carol extends herself to families and elders understand the complexities of the 
medical systems. 

SHINE (Serving Health Information Needs of Elders) With such turbulence in the 
health care systems we rely on Carol to keep us updated and respond to the 
many, many questions elders are struggling with today. 



160 



It would be impossible to manage this office of CEA without Carol Barrett, Martha 
Horsefield, Carol Deiffenbach, Mary Lu Kjer, Mary McElroy, Addie McGrath, 
Marion Smith, Betty Edminster, Jimmy Donohue and Ham Tewksbury along with 
many, many volunteers. They step forward to head programs such as the Caring 
for Elders at Home series last fall, The Cooking Gourmet Club offered by Anna 
Abbruzzese, the Book Club with Addie McGrath, Chair Yoga with Stephanie 
Whiting, the Walking Club with Steve Bobo and Joe McElroy, the Men's 
Breakfast Club with Win Merreli and the Knitting group with Edna Finnegan. We 
must not forget the great helpers in the kitchen three days a week, the office 
helpers and the high school students who assist duhng the school year. 

Our Board of Directors illustrated dedication to Cohasset's elders through their 
own volunteer hours. They take place not only at the Center but throughout the 
year with advocacy, letter writing and action calls to the governor and legislature 
bringing their attention to senior needs. Cohasset has a growing elder population 
and there has been a cutback in state funding. Special thanks to Susan 
Gallagher and the board members who worked so hard to bring in $5,000 to help 
with local elder services, to help pay for local services. 

As we close 2003, we faced the demise of the MTB-5 medical transportation to 
Boston program due to the elimination of state grants. Other state and federal 
grants will be lost due to the poor economy and the less than optimistic outlook 
for the immediate future. Our own town budget has seen an increase in personal 
hours for Carol Barrett from twenty-four to thirty four. The town will pay Jim 
Donohue for 10 hours because the S.S.E.S. 3-B grant was lost. We owe our 
thanks to Ronnie McMorris, board of selectmen for advocating our needs as an 
agency for elder care. At the same time we look forward to another 5% increase 
in our elderly population which is currently 23%. 

The challenges we faced and successfully conquered in the year 2003 fortify us 
as we move forward in the coming year. 

This year's report concludes by expressing our appreciation to numerous local 
businesses for their support. We are grateful to the South Shore Community 
Center for our home. The CEA also applauds the efforts of the Highway 
Department for coming to our rescue so many times. We praise the Board of 
Selectmen for their guidance and the Police and Fire Departments for their 
ongoing coordination and cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE PAUL PRATT MEMORIAL LIBRARY 



The year 2003 was a memorable one for the Paul Pratt Memorial Library. After one 
hundred years in our building on South Main Street, the collection was moved to its new 
location, the renovated Joseph Osgood School on the corner of Sohier Street and Ripley 
Road. The library was closed for the final two weeks in February for the move, and a 
gala celebration took place on the first weekend in March as residents viewed and 
admired the new facility. The library now provides a meeting room, which can be used 
by town citizens and organizations, as well as a community room, an historical room, 
and several group study areas. The much-expanded children's area, overseen by 
children's librarian Sharon Moody, has seen a great increase in its programs and 
circulation. The reference area, which now includes twelve public-access computers, is 
constantly in use with reference librarian Judy Simons keeping the patrons in touch with 
the latest advances in internet access and information technology. 

In April Jackie Rafferty joined the staff as Library Director. She became immediately 
involved in handling increased library usage and in formulating and implementing new 
policies and procedures involved in operating the new facility. She convened a 
committee to write a Long Range Plan mandated by the state. 

The Investment Advisory Committee, chaired by Barbara Power, again recommended a 
conservative investment policy and a "take-out" rate of 4%. The Trustees adopted that 
policy. The Friends of the Paul Pratt Memorial Library, under the leadership of Linda 
Wakeman, continued its service to the library by raising funds, purchasing books, 
assisting the staff, and in providing Museum passes that save Cohasset taxpayers 
thousands of dollars. 

Finally, the Library Trustees would like to thank everyone who worked to build the new 
library, our generous donors, the Town Manager and Selectmen, the public works 
department, our dedicated staff, and our former library director Janet Husband. Our new 
facility should be an asset to the town of Cohasset for many years to come. 

Respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF THE METROPOLITAN AREA PLANNING COUNCIL 

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council is the regional planning and econonnic development 
district representing 101 cities and towns in metropolitan Boston. In addition, the Council shares 
oversight responsibility for the region's federally funded transportation program as one of 14 
members of the Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization. The Council's legislative mandate is 
to provide technical and professional resources to improve the physical, social and economic 
condition of its district, and to develop sound responses to issues of regional significance. The 
Council provides research, studies, publications, facilitation and technical assistance in the areas 
of land use and the environment, housing, transportation, water resources management, 
economic development, demographic and socioeconomic data, legislative policy and interlocal 
partnerships that strengthen the operation of local governments. 

The Council is governed by 101 municipal government representatives, 21 gubernatorial 
appointees, and 10 state and 3 city of Boston officials. An Executive Committee composed of 25 
members oversees agency operations and appoints an executive director. The agency employs 
approximately 30 professional and administrative staff. Funding for Council activities is derived 
from contracts with government agencies and private entities, foundation grants, and a per-capita 
assessment charged to municipalities within the district. 

In the past year, the Council has focused on initiatives that respond to regional challenges, some 
of which include: 

• Municipal planning: working with more than 25 communities under the Executive Order 
418 program. EO 418 provides communities with up to $30,000 in state funding to 
undertake overall visioning on local planning issues, including housing, economic 
development, natural resources, and transportation. 

• Bringing advanced technology to cities and towns In the region: a contract with 
Pictometry International will provide aerial photographic images that municipal 
departments, including police and fire, can utilize to improve service delivery. 

• Adoption of smart growth principles: MAPC developed and adopted principles of good 
planning practice that will encourage sustainable patterns of growth to benefit people 
living throughout the metro Boston region. MAPC is also a founding member of the 
Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance. 

• Metro Data Center: The Center is an official US Census affiliate, helping to distribute 
demographic data throughout the region, including demographic, economic, and housing 
profiles for all 101 communities in metro Boston. 

• Transportation planning: as vice chair of the Boston Metropolitan Planning 
Organization, MAPC worked to develop the 25-year Regional Transportation Plan as well 
as the annual Transportation Improvement Program, including transportation spending 
priorities for the region. We also spearheaded development of transportation spending 
criteria, taking into account environmental, economic, and equity considerations. 

• Metropolitan Highway System Advisory Board: MAPC staffs this board, established in 
1997 by the Commonwealth to advise the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority on issues 
relative to land use, air rights, zoning, and environmental impacts associated with 
development of land owned by the authority. 

• Regional Services Consortiums: The four regional consortiums established by MAPC 
collectively purchased $18 million in office supplies and highway 
maintenance services for its 31 member municipalities. The project also facilitates 
collegial forums among members' chief administrative officers focused on collaborative 
problem solving and resource sharing. 

• Metro Mayors Coalition: Working with the mayors and city managers of 10 
municipalities in the urban core on issues such as group purchasing, employee health 
insurance, security and emergency coordination, and municipal relief legislation. 



163 



• Homeland security: addressing homeland security issues by facilitating cross-municipal 
partnerships between police, fire, and emergency management departments to acquire 
and share equipment, and more generally to plan for emergencies involving multiple 
municipalities. 

• Hazard mitigation: initiating a federally-funded partnership to produce a hazard 
mitigation plan to protect nine coastal communities in the event of natural disasters, 
including flood, v\/inter storm, wind, fire, and geologic hazards. 

Please visit our website, www.mapc.orq. for more details about these and other activities. 

Metrofuture: Malting A Greater Boston Region 

MAPC has launched a new civic process, called MetroFuture, to create an updated regional 
vision and growth strategy for metropolitan Boston. MetroFuture engages city and town 
governments, state agencies, non-profits, business, labor and academic groups in this planning 
process. The outcome will be a vision and growth strategy that puts the region on a sustainable 
path in terms of land use, economic, environmental and social issues. MAPC will need the 
support of a broad range of organizations in the region to help plan, fund and implement this new 
framework for addressing the challenges facing metropolitan Boston. 

The effort to create this new strategy was launched on October 29, 2003 at a Boston College 
Citizens Seminar. More than 400 citizens from a wide range of local and regional groups attended 
the event, and expressed their opinions on the region's resources and challenges as well as their 
own visions for the future. This input will be critical as we move to the next phase of this exciting 
multi-year project. Please visit the project web site, vw\AA/.metrofuture.orq, f or more information.

Pembrol<e, Rocl<land, Scituate, Weymouth) 

This year, the representatives of the 1 1 communities in the South Shore Coalition (SSC) Sub 
Region met monthly to discuss issues of mutual interest and interlocal significance. The SSC set 
transportation priorities and ranked projects based upon sub regional goals for input to the State 
funding organization; provided sub regional input to the Regional Transportation Plan and 
ongoing proposals for transportation studies for the region; heard presentations relating to Zoning 
Reform legislation, demographic/employment projections and analyses for the region and 
Chapter 40B Affordable Housing Planned Production Guidelines; participated in the on going 
efforts of Vision 2020 a partnership for Southeastern Massachusetts; were provided with 
information relating to, Pictometry, a new aerial photography available to communities through a 
Massachusetts Highway Department program; and planned a sub regional Visioning event in 
conjunction with the MAPC Regional Vision and Growth Strategy. The communities also 
benefited and learned lessons from each other through m.onthly discussions pertaining to ongoing 
activities in communities, such as the redevelopment efforts taking place at the former South 
Weymouth Naval Air Station.

SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL SCHOOL 

DISTRICT 

COHASSET TOWN REPORT 

Budget Cuts Result in Staffing and Program Reduction 



Like all of our District member communities and school systems, South Shore 
Vo-Tech was dramatically impacted by the Fiscal Year 2004 State Budget 
losses, even more so in some respects, as regional school districts across the 
Commonwealth were among the most severely affected entities. Lost regional 
transportation aid alone has resulted in significant service adjustments for Vo- 
Tech students. In summary, South Shore has been forced to eliminate an 
English position, eliminate the reading teacher position and program, reduce the 
Special Needs staff, cut sports program offerings, reduce staffing in two 
vocational programs, begin phasing out the school's Industrial Technology 
program, cut Physical Education and cut back clerical positions and instructional 
classroom aide support. Just as importantly, in addition to personnel losses, 
supply budgets were slashed and Capital and Equipment budgets totally 
eliminated. These line items constitute a critical lifeline in a vocational technical 
school, the means by which an institution stays current with rapidly changing 
technologies. Needless to say, the hopes are for better financial days. 

Extremely responsive to community needs and expectations, South Shore's 
originally submitted budget and assessments passed unanimously in the 
District's eight towns. The eventual compromise State Budget legislatively 
required a recalculation of assessments, resulting in a re-shifting of member town 
responsibilities, some dramatic in their change, but eventually resolved. Fiscal 
year 2005 most certainly looks to present new challenges. 

Despite the financial thunderstorms, the past year has represented one of 
tremendous accomplishment at Vo-Tech. Continued progress by students in the 
State's MCAS Assessment program saw ninety-nine (99%) percent of South 
Shore's Class of 2003 reach the mandated competency determination criteria 
necessary for graduation. This represented the strongest performance by any of 
Massachusetts' twenty-six (26) regional vocational technical schools. Similarly, 
the students in the classes of 2004 and 2005 are demonstrating strong skills 
acquisition and remediation successes, also comparing favorably with students in 
like school environments. Of particular accomplishment. South Shore's math 
scores on MCAS are improving impressively, with increasing numbers of 
students scoring in the proficient and advanced categories. 

While last year witnessed the school's year long self-study within the framework 
of accreditation review by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges 
- Commission on Technical and Career Institutions, Fall 2003 will have 



165 



experienced the arrival of a twenty-five member peer visiting team/committee for 
a four day evaluation process. All phases of South Shore's educational and 
operational mission and status will be examined and a report generated for 
Spring 2004 action by the NEASC. 

South Shore Viking athletics had a particularly memorable year as the 2002 
Football squad returned to the Division VII Super Bowl stage and emerged 
victorious with a resounding 34-0 victory over previously undefeated 
Charlestown. The other Viking teams, Drama Club, Student Government and 
activities, Skills USAA/ICA, Ford/AAA Competition, Parents Association and 
community service efforts all generated successes and growth by students over 
the last twelve months. 

Wherever possible. South Shore's long range plans for continued facility 
upgrades also made progress. Completion of a small exercise and training area 
in the gymnasium, computer lab troubleshooting upgrades in the Electronics 
program, completion of the building's intranet network wiring, a desktop 
publishing lab in Graphic Arts and a replacement of the facility's 40+ year old 
emergency generator headed a busy year in terms of the regional school's 
infrastructure. 

Very positively, Vo-Tech Three Year Project 550 plan has witnessed enrollment 
growth to near maximum levels. More and more students, parents and 
community at large citizens are seeing the very real potential of a strong 
vocational technical school experience on the educational lives of young men 
and women. Currently, 7 of the total enrollment of 556 are from Cohasset. June 
of 2003 celebrated the graduation of the following student from the town: Justin 
Drybanski. Whether it is the interaction with member town committees over 
budgetary realities, continued MCAS growth, the NEASC accreditation process 
or a community service project. South Shore Vocational Technical High School 
stands ready to continue a strong regional partnership with the area town 
communities. 

South Shore looks forward to another dynamic year of service to students and 
our community constituencies, and to providing the very best career and 
technical education resources possible.

REPORT OF THE RECREATION COMMISSION 

It gives us great pleasure to report to residents, the activities of their Recreation 
Commission for 2003. 

During the year, approximately 4,350 individuals of all ages participated in a variety of 
structured programs, activities and events. While budget restrictions persist, our latitude 
of use of the Revolving Account Fund for 100% Self-Supporting Programs are continuing 
under this financial mechanism causing no impact upon taxpayers. In fact, via the 
Recreation Commission's policy to charge an Administrative Service Fee charge to all 
R.A.F. sponsored programs, taxpayers are reimbursed for the cost of the recreation 
budget. That is, revenues produced via Administrative Service Fee's, coupled with 
budget sponsored program fees, service fees and charges helps reimburse taxpayers 
for the budget of their Recreation Commission. Only revenue on deposit in the General 
Fund can be considered recapitalization revenue. 

During Fiscal Year 2003, ending June 30, 2003, the Recreation Commission produced 
for the General Fund $70,684.03. $6,800.00 was produced for use by the Commission 
via grants and matching grant funds. Concurrently, $31,383.31 was transacted via 
Revolving Account Funds for 100% Self-Supporting via fees charged participants for a 
variety of services. Approximately another $260,000.00 was transacted via other and 
direct self-supporting financial systems duhng F.Y. 2003, manifesting a collective 
$357,693.80 of recreational services to residents. These figures do not include the 
thousands of man-hours that are annually donated by hundreds of residents, in support 
of a variety of program operations. 

Due to the severe financial difficulties town government faces dunng Fiscal Year 
2004/2005, the Recreation Commission aims to become 75% to 100% self-supporting 
via revenue dedicated to the General Fund of the town only. Via fee charges and 
administrative service fees to contractors to the Commission our intent will be to 
recapitulate about $100,000.00 to $120,000.00 back to taxpayers. It is our intent to do 
this with as little financial impact upon users of our services as possible. 

Municipal recreation is for the benefit of all residents and we continue to direct our efforts 
towards assurance of equal access and opportunity to the entire community. To this 
end, a specific and calculated portion of revenue was not collected this year from 
residents who were temporarily unable to pay full fee charges for services. In many 
instances time was volunteered in lieu of full fee payments, benefiting the department 
and participants of programs. 

Programming represents only one aspect of the responsibilities, duties, and functions as 
prescribed and conferred upon the recreation commission by both Massachusetts 
General Laws and By-Laws of the Town. Continuing efforts are focused upon upgrading 
and renovating existing outdoor recreational facilities under jurisdiction of the 
commission. Often times these undertakings are coordinated via a lend of both public 
and privately solicited resources and efforts, easing taxpayers' burden. 



167 



Numerous town departments and officials have continued to support our effort in this 
area for which we remain enormously grateful. Further, we remain indebted to many 
private and civic groups for their magnanimous efforts and resources. 

The seven member, elected board of the Recreation Commissioner's, volunteer their 
services to the town and department meeting regularly in order to discuss a wide- 
spectrum of topics relative to the leisure needs and pursuits of all residents. Further, the 
Commissioner's establish policy, and provide departmental direction, support, and 
assistance. Each meeting is publicly posted at least one week prior to date and 
residents are cordially invited to attend and participate in any meeting. Essential to our 
proper function, and absolutely vital towards success, is the ability to remain responsive 
to the dynamic community needs. We consider your input and feedback our most 
important source of guidance. 

Degree of community interest and support for recreational and leisure-time services can 
directly be measured by two essential factors. First and most logically, interest is 
measured by the level of participation by residents in various services. Secondly and 
perhaps as important, interest and support is readily recognizable by the extraordinary 
numbers of volunteers who donate their time, effort and expertise in conduct with a 
number of our programs, events and activities. 

The recreation commission wishes to acknowledge gratitude to the many individuals, 
civic and business organizations, school and sport's groups, town boards, committees 
and departments who have lent their support and assistance in our efforts to best serve 
the recreational and leisure needs of residents of all ages. While too numerous to 
mention each name, none are forgotten and all are sincerely appreciated and thanked.

YOUTH RESOURCES - RECREATION COMMISSION 

It is with distinct pleasure that the recreation commission submits their Annual Report to 
the residents of Cohasset as we enter our 4'^ year of operations at the Teen Garage. 

The Garage continues to serve our teen population in grades 6-12 offering a safe, 
supervised facility designed to help meet the recreational and social needs of this age 
group. 

It has become encumbent upon as to ensure that the Garage operates on a financially 
self-supporting basis each fiscal year, starting this fiscal year, 2004. ie: July 1, 2003. 

While open weekends for drop in use by youngsters, the Garage also offers frequent 
dances and other special activities. The Garage also remains available for rental by 
residents for pnvate parties or functions. 

It remains via small, per capita fee charges to participants for dances and special 
events, coupled with the generosity of residents and civic organizations that the Garage 
is able to operate financially. 

Our costs are the usual utility, telephone, supplies, games, etc. along with staff payroll. 
We try to upgrade electronic games and equipment, along with other games and often 
as possible within our limited revenue/income. Essentially, our monthly costs of 
operation and staffing run about $1,200.00, without any purchases of new equipment or 
supplies. 

However, via the continued support and generosity of residents, civic and business 
organizations and per capita fee charges to the youngsters, we feel this can be 
accomplished. Anyone wishing to help with this endeavor can find self-addressed 
envelopes just outside the Recreation Department office, in the foyer of Town Hall. 

The youth of Cohasset and members of the Recreation Commission wish to extend their 
most sincere gratitude to the numerous residents, business organizations, town boards, 
officials and departments who have generously donated money, time, effort, materials 
and supplies towards our project

REPORT OF PLYMOUTH COUNTY MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 

The Commissioners of the Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project are 
pleased to submit the following report of our activities during 2003. 

The Project is a special district created by the State Legislature in 1957, and is 
now composed of all Plymouth County towns, the City of Brockton, and the Town of 
Cohasset in Norfolk County. The Project is a regional response to a regional problem, 
and provides a way of organizing specialized equipment, specially trained employees, 
and mosquito control professionals into a single agency with a broad geographical area 
of responsibility. 

The 2003 season began with an above normal water table which produced large 
numbers of spring and summer brood mosquitoes throughout the County. Efforts were 
directed at larval mosquitoes starting with the spring brood. Ground and aerial 
larviciding was accomplished using B.t.i., an environmentally selective bacterial agent. 
Upon emergence of the spring brood of mosquitoes, ultra-low volume adulticiding began. 
The Project responded to 11 , 1 30 requests for service, the largest number since 1 998. 

We are again happy to report that in 2003 there were no human Eastern Equine 
Encephalitis or West Nile Virus cases in Plymouth County. The recurring problem of 
EEE and WNV to the northeast continues to ensure cooperation between this Project 
and the Department of Public Health. 

West Nile Virus decreased duhng 2003 with 15 human cases statewide. Two 
horse cases occurred in Plymouth County during 2003, Rochester (EEE-9/27) and 
Plympton (WNV - 10/6). In 2003, 18 birds tested positive for WNV. To ascertain the 
risk to human health and horses, this Project continued placing mosquito traps in known 
infected areas from the year prior. The mosquitoes collected were tested at the 
Massachusetts Department of Public Health for EEE and WNV. WNV was isolated from 
Culex species collected in Brockton (9/3 and 9/11). EEE virus was first isolated from 
Culiseta melanura, a bird biting species, from collections in Halifax on August 26, 2003. 
Five additional EEE isolates were collected from a Project New Jersey Trap (8/18, 9/9, 
9/16, and two isolates on 9/23) in Pembroke. In an effort to keep the public informed, 
EEE and WNV activity updates are regularly posted on our web site, 
www.plymouthmosQuito. com and Massachusetts Department of Public Health at 
www, state, ma. us/dph/wnv/wnv1 . htm . 

The figures specific to the Town of Cohasset are given below. While mosquitoes 
do not respect town lines the information given below does provide a tally of the 
activities which have had the greatest impact on the health and comfort of Cohasset 
residents. 

Insecticide Application. 2,272 acres were treated using truck mounted sprayers 
for control of adult mosquitoes. More than one application was made to the same site if 
mosquitoes reinvaded the area. The first treatments were made in June and the last in 
September. 

Our greatest effort has been targeted at mosquitoes in the larval stage, which 
can be found in woodland pools, swamps, marshes and other standing water areas. 
Inspectors continually gather data on these sites and treat with highly specific larvicides 
when immature mosquitoes are present. 

Water Management. During 2003 crews removed blockages, brush and other 
obstructions from 1,460 linear feet of ditches and streams to prevent overflows or 
stagnation that can result in mosquito breeding. This work, together with machine 
reclamation, is most often carried out in the fall and winter. 



173 



Finally, we have been tracking response time, that is the time between notice of 
a mosquito problem and response by one of our inspectors. The complaint response 
time in the Town of Cohasset was less than two days with more than 1 38 complaints 
answered. 

Mosquito Survey. A systematic sampling for the mosquitoes in Cohasset 
indicates that Coquillettidia perturbans was the most abundant species. Other important 
species collected include Aedes vexans and Culiseta melanura. 

We encourage citizens or municipal officials to call our office for information 
about mosquitoes, mosquito-borne diseases, control practices, or any other matters of 
concern.

ANNUAL REPORT TO THE TOWN 
SCHOOL COMMITTEE AND SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

I am pleased to submit the Fiscal Year 2003 Annual Report for the Cohasset Public 
Schools. 

Cohasset Public Schools Mission 

To encourage and expect maximum achievement 
through a supportive learning community which 
strives to develop ethical and responsible citizens 
who love to leam. 

This year marked the end of the construction projects with the last phase of the Middle 
School being completed in December of '03. The Deer Hill School was completed last 
year to every ones delight. The community can be proud of its new facilities, and we 
extend a grateful appreciation to the community for its support. 

The School District has completed its plans for a new organizational arrangement 
through the efforts of the Reorganization Task Force. In September of '04 the Joseph 
Osgood Elementary will change to grades pre-K to 2, Deer Hill will change to grades 3 to 
5, the Middle School will change to grades 6 to 8, and the High School will be grades 9 
to 12. Academically, our students continue to be in the highest rankings on the State 
mandated MCAS tests particularly at the High School level. 

In addition, the Middle-High School has received its renewed accreditation from the New 
England Association of Schools and Colleges. A tremendous thank you goes to all who 
participated in this process. Our transportation system has been brought back in house 
after several years with a phvate contractor. The community has provided the funds to 
begin to upgrade our fleet of vehicles which will serve us well in the future. 

Technology continues to be an integral part of the learning process as all facilities are 
fully equipped with computer labs and teaching personnel. There has been support for 
expanding this initiative within available funds from the construction projects with a 
return of 60% on the dollar as reimbursed by the State. 

As we prepare for next year, ever present will be the difficult financial times. With limited 
resources the challenges before us will be met with a resolve to continue to maintain the 
quality of education in Cohasset, and to improve where needed. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Dr. Edward Malvey 
Superintendent of Schools

GENERAL INFOR^UTION 

In September, 1997 Cohasset High School changed from an 8 period 42 minute scheduling model to a 5 period 90 
minute block format. This plan was instituted to better meet the mandates of time and learning under Massachusetts 
State Education Reform. As part of the restructuring, all study halls have been eliminated. Classes also rotate through 
the schedule and one period is dropped daily. With the block schedule, the length of courses varies from one quarter, 
to one semester, to three quarters. All students are required to take three quarters of English each year. Advanced 
Placement courses are a full year as well. The majority of the remaining academic classes are one semester in length.

CLASS RANK AND GRADE POINT AVERAGE INFORMATION 

Grade Point Average is calculated by computer at the end of every year from Grade 9 through Grade 12. This information is 
readily available and students are advised to check their GPA in class periodically in order to improve upon past performance 
and to assess their potential college admission. 

Grade Point Average is computed according to course and section difficulty. The three (3) levels of difficulty are: 

Advanced Placement courses 

Level one representing honors courses 

Level two representing a rigorous college preparatory program 



Non-academic electives have no weight and therefore have no bearing on Grade Point Average.

Example: A grade of B in an Advanced Placement course would receive a weight of 4.00 while a grade 
of B in a Level 2 academic subject would receive a weight of 3.00. In other words, there is a 
difference of a full grade between an Advanced Placement grade and a grade in the Level 2 
Program.
